Dreaming of going to Italy?
Here’s your chance to turn that dream into reality! Join us Wednesday, 12/3 at 6pm in CSL room 213 to find out how you can travel with LIS Professor Dr. Renate Chancellor to Italy, next summer 2015.
Applications are due February 23, 2015.
“Serving as the political center of western civilization for centuries, Rome is home to a plethora of structures, artifacts, texts, and documents that illuminate the rich history of the city as well as the Italian peninsula from classical times to the present. Further north, Florence is home to materials reflective of the city’s cultural centrality during the Renaissance.
As participants in the course will learn, professionals in Italian museums, libraries, and archives have fantastic cultural materials to work with. Through readings, site visits, and meetings with professionals, students will gain a basic knowledge of how Italian cultural professionals make museum, archival, and library resources known to various user groups. We will explore public programs, outreach strategies, and digital and physical exhibits, and study the principles and practical elements involved in creating each, with site visits and instruction designed to reveal how existing institutions apply those principles to learning in their public programming.”
